Bugs/ Glitches

  • The following bugs were fixed:
    • Resolved an issue which prevented users from log in via Discord or Facebook on Android devices under certain circumstances.
    • Resolved an issue which triggered incorrect behavior when accessing Festival Quests section after launching the game offline.
    • Resolved an issue when visually wheels of certain cars were spinning in the wrong direction in 60 FPS settings.
  • On the Android platform, some relatively high to mid-end devices that were capable of supporting the game using the "High/Very High" graphics settings and the "Higher Frame Rate" option prior to the Neon Season Update are currently unable to do so. Manually changing the graphics to anything higher than "Medium" and restarting the game does not fix this problem.
    • Additionally, although the graphics settings are locked to "Medium", the visual appearance during regular gameplay (when racing outside of the Garage) has the fidelity of the "Low/Very Low" settings, depending on the device.
    • As a result of the "High Frame Rate" feature being inactive and inaccessible, the game has varying levels of playability, being progressively worse with plenty of frame rate stuttering and severe input lag on less powerful devices.
    • These problems were fixed on July 11 and players were given the following items as compensation:
  • Bugs that still persist:
    • Game crashes are still frequent on Windows PC.
      • This has now worsened when game crashes occur after only 1-2 races.
  • Equipping items on the avatar can cause the camera's position to be substantially lowered, causing it to clip into the floor and show underneath it.
  • On June 30, an over-the-air update rebalanced the ranks of the following cars:
  • If the player is in a timezone that has 0:00 UTC occuring before local time midnight, the game will give additional currency ads at midnight even if all 5 have been watched.
